First thing to look at is what type of vampire bloodline you want to go for.  Carson has always liked his independents while I gravitate to VK.

1.  2 necros in a zombie bunker is pretty much a mainstay.  I like putting one on a corpse cart.  2 Evocations seems to be the absolute minimum for VC

2.  Lots of Zombies are good.  Units of 8 dogs are core.

3. Winged Reapers are not as good as they once were but can get the job done.

4. I like dark coaches.  They can hit hard and stick in with T6 and 4+/4+.

5. Need a good hard hitting unit.  Barrow Guard are the typical ones with halberds or Great Weapons depending on flavor and if you have a buff wagon (corpse cart).

6. BSB or no BSB?  They are handy; especially for keeping your grinding units around longer.  But it depends on if you can afford it.

The blade of red thirst is really good for VC. Helps keep a unit fresh. With VK, you reroll failed vampiric rolls.

I think I have my core down after thinking about it for a while, it's the power house of the army I'm not sure about right now. I was thinking some grave guard but I feel the need to get other troop types mixed in. Problem I'm having is seeing the synergy between everything else .

My first idea was a max block of skeletons with halberds, two units of 30 grave guard with halberds, 2 units of three winged reapers with halberds, 2 or 3 units of 8 dogs a banchee and a vamp caster / fighter . I had a ... big ghost chariot thing as well but at only 4500 now it doesn't fit

I like the Winged Reapers with additional hand weapon. 4 strength 5 attacks at init 5! They hit the same time as Elves and faster than anything else - which can be huge. The models are expensive and only come 2 in a box for $60+.... Sad

I've been hit or miss with spawns. They are pretty good at clearing chaff. Pretty much stereotypical glass cannon unit.

They can march outside IP, which I feel like is really good. They can also fly so win-win.

You need at least 2 evocation casters. Other than grave guard, the army lacks real heavy hitters now. You have to be able to depend on raising to win games. A necromancer on a corpse cart is very, very good.

How do zombie dragons fare ? Seems like such a huge amount of points to spend on a single fig ...

As well as most dragons; it's a lot of points to sink into a single model and it's doubly bad as VC as it is typically your general on it's back. It's going to be a target for a lot of shooting and has limited resistance to it.

I've never run one before but it could be fun; I'm tempted to make an empire dragon list for onslaught.

I've never tried it, have seen some lists with two counts. one on foot for the general and one on the zombie dragon.

We should all make dragon lists. Andre could bring one of those magma dragons with a dwarf on it as a general on a throne.
